We stayed here when visiting the Viejas Arena to see The Who. We stayed 3 nights so had time to see San Diego and the location worked perfectly. You need to drive to the arena and the signage is virtually non-existent but it works. It isn't far to drive to the tourist attractions either.
We walked to a local brewery and enjoyed a pizza and there were many other haunts along this stretch of highway.
Despite being on the roadside we had no noise issues or trouble sleeping.
The young lady at check in was very friendly and helpful with local info.
The room was comfortable, well equipped and clean and had the wash basin in the room outside the bathroom which can be a help when two people are trying to get washed at the same time.
The room lighting was good.
They had a recycling bin as well as the general bin, which is good. They also respected the policy of not changing towels during our stay. Other hotels say they will and don't, which really annoys me as it's such a waste of water and energy.
The breakfast was OK but the room was often full as it's only small.
The wifi was unsecure and unstable but acceptable.
There was no grab rail in the bath which I would expect to be standard.
Overall a very pleasant stay. less

Dear Valued Guest,
Thank you for sharing your wonderful review with our TripAdvisor community. I'm delighted to hear you enjoyed your most resent stay with us. As you mentioned we are a short drive to Viejas Arena which makes it a perfect location to stay for concerts or venues being held there or for our SDSU parents as well!
We are a small hotel with a single-minded dedication to consistent service, quality, and value. We believe our AAA 2-diamond hotel is well located, friendly and very clean. I'm glad we were able to provide everything we strive to provide to each one of our guest. We appreciate hearing how lovely our Front Desk agents were, giving you directions and recommendations of local restaurants or things to do in San Diego.
Our team takes water conservation seriously, you are right, it is a waste or water and energy. We are pleased that you took part in helping us conserve those two important tings. We have also implemented "going green" in our breakfast room by providing corelle and silverware for our guest to use and plastic-ware only upon request.
Once again, thank you for staying with us. It was a pleasure serving you and your family, we hope to serve you again in the near future
Yours In Hospitality,
Best Western Lamplighter Inn & Suites
